A Meditation on The Death Card

All endings are but beginnings in thee , O glorious king

the central sun! May I remember that it is in dying

that I shall awaken to life eternal, and to light sublime.

The night is passing as the day approaches. That which

I have sown in the outer world must die so that by dying it may awaken to new life in the world of my true soul.

That which I have sown is now quickened except it die.

I shall welcome the destruction of all obstacles and

unregenerate forces within my nature

so that I may be reconstructed in God!

Dr. Stephan Hoeller

"...Alike for those who for today prepare,

And those that after a tomorrow stare,

A Muezzin from The Tower of Darkness cries

'Fools! your Reward is neither Here nor There."

From    "The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

Death I'm not afraid of for to me it will be a release. Death is just another stage between now and then. now death beyond.

What will bother me is the manner of my death. Long and painful would be awful especially trapped in my body with no way to communicate.

Other than that it will be my ticket to a much over do vacation.

"...And here interposes the Spectre of Death

as it breaks all the partnerships of life and habits

of mutual leaning of furtherance,

to say nothing of the the imaginary hopes it shivers.

I speak not of our own death...what properly we have nothing to do.

It seems the impertinence of folly

to suffer the fear of Death.

My soul advertises me of none.

I can see very well how gloomy is to me the death of others'

but my own I have no more to do with providing myself

with a coffin and sexton.

My call is to live. But whilst I see the rude 

disappointments occasioned by death, they

seem to me made ruder by ourselves.

The imagination makes the largest part:

and indolence the senses and custom find

in the disasters a ready and lasting apology for

duties omitted and faculties rusted

for narrowness and sleep."

Ralph Waldo Emerson   1893
